Under The Weather

I am feeling under the weather for the past 3 days. It happens on Friday evening when I reach home after meeting up with fellow blogger Elin. She is such a nice lady. She bought me so many goodies from Ipoh, Thank you Elin. Anyway, my whole body was aching so I took 2 panadols and went to bed. The next morning, I can’t even walk. All the joints on my body ache soooooooooo bad and I also have very high fever. Never have I experience such an excruciating pain in my whole life. I can’t even go down the stairs.

My sister took me to the doctor and when he sees me in such pain he gave me a jab right away. He is worried it might be dengue fever but it’s still too early to tell. All he can do is gave me some painkiller and something for fever and told me to wait for another 3 days to take a blood test.

Is the 3rd day today so I will be going for my blood test. Hopefully is not dengue. If its dengue I will need to be admitted. I am still having fever but the pain on all my joints is not that bad now.

Anyway, will keep you update on the outcome of the blood test

Thankfully you are recovering slowly. Let's see what the doc says during this visit. And if indeed dengue (touch-wood), papaya leaves juice works wonders.
